Coolant pooling on top of inlet manifold

Goodwood 5 October 2019

As it runs ok on track the basic system looks ok. I would go for a better fan first as it does not seem to get enough air when stationary

Shelsley Walsh 21/22 September 2019

Watch the sun in your eyes later in the day

If you are getting the bottom of the hill right your speed on the lower trap should be close to that over the line :shock:

SE5a - the roller coaster ride continues

Modern fuels with bio ethanol are more prone to this. A lower ethanol fuel (e.g. Shell Optimax/V power) would be better.

Standard tyre sizes

I agree, 185/70 is a good replacement for 165/80.

I agree re springs. As a rough guide the lower wishbone should be horizontal at rest. Yours look about 50mm too low.
